I just wanted to share with you a little about myself so you can get a sense of who I am and what this blog could turn into (as of right now just random stuff about my life).
So who am I?
Well I am a 28 yr old guy from Nottingham, UK (you know… the place where Robin Hood is from, and before you ask, no I do not know him).
Way back, when cassette tapes where the norm, Pogs where the biggest thing since sliced bread and everyone owned a Yoyo, I was one of those kids who really did not care about my future. My first thought was finish school, get a job, get loads of money and (as poetically written buy those gangster rap gentlemen) get bitches’.
This was fine for a few months, I worked as an electricians apprentice, went to college 1 day a week and I spent my wages at the weekend. (trying to look for those bitches and hoes the rappers where talking about, but I couldn’t find them).
I got bored!
So I changed jobs again, and again and again. This went on for a few years, I just could not get settled into something that I enjoyed.
So what to do now? I was stuck with limited education, living in a council estate with everyone else around me seemingly happy that they are doing nothing with their lives. I wanted out!!
So I went back to college and decided to do something I loved, which was music technology. I enrolled in a level 2 Music Tech course that I loved. In-fact I did so well, that after I finished my year, I was recommended to start a foundation degree (things are looking up I thought)
2 years later and I graduated. I was so happy. The first in my family to do so and on top of that I had met an amazing girl (more about my love life later)
That was over a year ago now, I did not follow the music tech route (very competitive but I still make music as a hobby) I became a deputy Manager of a Charity Fundraising company.
But guess what????
I got bored again!!!!
Same thing day in, day out. Long hours were killing me and I had very limited time to spend with my girlfriend.
Why should I work for “the man” I thought? I was slowly killing myself, physically and mentally.
So I started my own company (I will explain more about how I did this in a later post as I think you are probably getting bored of reading this by now).
Its an online store that sells Designer Toys. You can have a look here if you want www.takaravinyl.com
You will be happy to know that it is going relatively well. Its not making me millions yet, but its something I am enjoying and it has given me more time to spend with my girl.
So what is next?
Well I am going back into education and I have enrolled in a TESOL course to start in September and I will be topping up my degree the following year. My plan is , in two years, move to South Korea and teach english. Its a great way to save some money for the future and I will get to travel.
In the up coming posts I will keep you updated on my progress (if people read this that is)
and thats it.
Thats all I am going to share with the world right now.
If you are still reading this, I just want to say thanks. Either you are very bored and you have exhausted Facebook or you generally enjoyed reading this. For those of you who enjoyed it….. thank you
Until next time..
